High temperatures and laggy | Topology: cpus: 1x cores: 2

I recently changed my chromebook os to Garuda KDE Dr460nized gaming edition, but when I open an application or a tab it lags and when I use the laptop when it is charging it gets very hot. i have the chromebook: chromebook 14a-na0170nd, does anyone know how to fix this?

Welcome to Garuda.

Garuda (2.6.6-1):

First of all, reboot, as indicated by this symbol

The problem in my opinion is due to the week performance of the machine

This is even below our suggested requirenents.
Ideally, you should consider a lighter edition.
Maybe you could try checking in the Garuda Assistant if the performance tweaks are on and remove them, moving to a more "conservative" configuration...


But this is the Minimum requirements

  • 30 GB storage space
  • 4 GB RAM
  • Video card with OpenGL 3.3 or better
  • 64-bit system

And i have this

Product name HP Chromebook 14a-na0142nd
Microprocessor Intel® Celeron® N4020 (1.1 GHz base frequency, up to 2.8 GHz burst frequency, 4 MB L2 cache, 2 cores)
Chipset Intel® Integrated SoC
Memory, standard 4 GB LPDDR4-2400 SDRAM (onboard)
Video graphics Intel® UHD Graphics 600
Hard drive 64 GB eMMC

I have met the minimum requirements

Yes, sure, otherwise the installer would stop you.
There is no formula to determine hw requirenents and you can only define minimum indications.
And this depends on a combination of factors.
Consider that a part of RAM is taken by the GPU, and see that you're already using a lot of that. Probably with not many applications in use.
The CPU is probably working a lot due to that, and a more performing one would have helped. So the CPU temperature goes high.
Even more if you are using performance tweaks. Probably not.
Anyway a configuration aimed to power saving would relief the CPU workload.


How do I turn on power saving and why does the laptop lag when I open an application.

Open Garuda Assistant and check the options (I can't help more at the moment).
The reason for the lag (in my opinion) is the explanation above.


do you know other operating systems that I can put on it and use without lag?

There are so many. Probably too many. It depends on your preferences.
Prepare a USB Key with Ventoy, so you'll simply copy there all the ISO files.
Start from some light Garuda editions, check on the web sites. I don't know, if you are not accostumed with tiling window managers, go e.g. for the xfce, cinnamon or lxqt editions.
Try them all on the USB. When you decide which one you prefer, install it, and check the performance.
Outside Garuda, maybe Linux Mint or MX Linux. But there are dozens...


Open htop and check if your CPU% is running high at idle.

Do anyone know how to make a boot able USB, because I tried to make on but it doesn't work. i want the os Garuda LXQT-Kwin.

Use ventoy then just add your iso


Can i get a .exe file, because i want to make a bootable usb on a windows pc.

yes ventoy works on windows (woogle is your friend)


i dont know why, but my pc doesn't detect the usb. can i use rufus too.

yes you can but if ventoy is not seeing the usb then you will need to format it


yes, but i cant the pc doesn't detect the usb.

then use gparted to format it ???


i didn't know how to use that. I installed USB Disk Storage Format Tool 6.1, but it says the storage cannot be detected
